Our group of 10 stayed overnight on our motorcycling trip. Not only were our rooms clean and comfortable, the owners put on a great roast dinner for us and a BBQ breakfast before we hit the road early next morning. If you need accommodation when in town, this is the place to stay.

I stayed here after a long drive and was very happy with the service and the comfort of the room. I had a great room service dinner, and the bed was comfortable and bathroom well appointed. Staff were friendly, and if anything apologetic that they had to bring the tea and coffee late, as they had been busy. I was...

An older style motel and so has small rooms but they are comfortable. What is great is to find a motel which is attempting to move to renewable energy with solar power. There was a huge thunderstorm in the evening with very little effect on the facilities but we remained comfortable through it.

A short walk from the town centre of Inverell, typical motel setup with covered parking in from of the rooms. Standard room with fridge & tea/ coffee facilities, nice clean shower room & breakfast/ meals seemed to be available but we didn't try them.

Dissappointed. The exterior looks OK, but the room was very old and whilst it looked clean, on further inspection it hadnt been cleaned properly for a while (crumbs near the bed and a lot of dirt and tissues under the lounge). The air-conditioner was very noisy. On a plus the bathroom was new and clean, the bed was comfortable. We...

Booked in by work, so didnt know what to expect. Reception staff was freindly, as was the German Shepherd who came to say hi. The rooms have been refitted and have kitchenettes for self sufficiency. Quite comfortable and very clean.

Stopover on the long road home. The property is well located on the highway but the rooms are tired and need a bit of TLC. The location was good for an evening walk along the river but happy to move on in the morning.

After driving 11hrs the difficulty in finding accommodation for family of 6 wasn't a problem at the Sapphire. Clean , comfortable , friendly and personal service. Next time we travel north it will be through Inverell and definitely stay at the Sapphire City Motor Inn. Say hello to Max while you're there.

My family and I stayed for three nights on a recent trip to Inverell. The room was generous in size, well presented and clean. Unfortunately on our first morning we awoke to no hot water! When I asked the management about this they suggested that the water would reheat and that "people just shower for too long". When the water...
